3031Message for Tygerpurr!
- Dec 1, 2007Hi, Tygerpurr!
Just wanted to tell you the poster Shabdahu who wanted to
give an award to a post on ET is very disgruntled with ESA, so
he resonated with the comment about another anti-eckankar
group-his comment IMO was directed more at ESA than it
was at your post.
I'm posting this here rather than on ET because I know it would
just keep the discussion going over there and probably in
another direction. I don't care to put myself in another
endless/going nowhere "debate."
But I will say your posts and Sharon's are very good and
appropriate replies to summer.city! Especially, since you are
only expressing your impressions and beliefs about how
eckancrap and cult mentality operate--I see nothing wrong
with stating an opinion. Compassion is a wonderful thing if
not used to make excuses or give rude individuals a free pass
to misbehave and abuse others! : )
This is one of Tygerpurr's post on another group discussion:

###I never said that you said this!####
There is a big difference between everyday compassion or common
decency and Eckankar's artificial, affected, exaggerated hype of
saintly behavior or god-realized "unconditional love."
You also wrote this in your reply: "I am not a Saint nor do I claim to
be God or Self Realized and I think it is a mistake for these eckist
and execkists to think they are or ever will be. IMHO this is a huge
inflated "Ego" and sometimes a normal argument of sorts is just the
####This is just a general statement not meant for you, Leaf,
personally. It was just a realization that I had about eckankarp and
how people are drawn into Cults and many ridiculous religious
ideologies. It is what keeps people stuck for decades in Frauds and
Scams. It is Egoism to the extreme. The only way an eckist can truely
leave ekcankarp is if they learn to make friends with themselves and
understand that it is ok to be HUMAN, imo.####
Do you mean to say that because I chose to treat a stranger with some
understanding that I'm still harboring some eckankar delusion of
saintliness? And does this mean that anyone who tries to be nice to
another person is as deluded as a cult member? And ex-eckists who are
kind once in a while have inflated egos, similar to that which exudes
from high initiates?
####This is obviously not what I said. I don't think you deserve an
award for this. You are way off base.
More and more it does seem that "city.summer" 's post was really meant
to just be an insult. Would not this fall under part of the definition
of a message board Troll?#####
